Advent 2023

Our Advent series, “How does a weary world rejoice?,” from A Sanctified Art will address our weariness but also recognize that weariness is constant. We will seek guidance from our ancestors on how to respond.

If you have been weary or are experiencing weariness, we hope you join us not only to acknowledge those emotions but to find joy and be able to rejoice.  We invite you to engage in the series through daily devotionals, poetry, art, and worship.
